Found this today and it really impressed me. The attention to detail and overal quality of artwork and storytelling is the best i’ve seen in a while. From what I can see its mostly done with Softimage and a whole lot of skill+talent+patience. Well done!
“Le Gouffre is the first animated short film produced and directed by Lightning Boy Studio, a young creative team based in Montreal. The film tells the story of two spirited travelers who come across an incredibly wide chasm on their journey and decide to build a bridge to cross it. Released in February 2015, the project had first gained a lot of attention following the huge success of its Kickstarter campaign, which allowed the creators to finance the movie’s post-production. Many were impressed by the passion and determination of the small team of three animators, who spent more than two full years creating the 10-minute film.” – Lightning Boy Studio
As of now, Le Gouffre has been selected in more than 40 festivals around the world and won six awards, three of them for “Best Animated Short”.
